Our Helpful Spirit

Posted on June 12, 2011

This story was told to me by my Grandmother (an absolute skeptic) from her father.

In the late 1950′s my grandmother and her family were living on a farm in West Virginia. Times were hard for them and money was getting tighter and tighter. The bank was getting ready to take the farm and leave them homeless.

My great grand father said one night he had a dream about a woman walking down the stairs of the home and trying to speak to him, but he heard nothing she said. He had this dream for several weeks and it was the same each time.

Then one night he fell asleep in a chair in the living room and he said he was awoken to see the lady walking down the stairs. Thinking he was still dreaming he tried to wake up. He finally realized he was awake and he noticed the woman pointing to the end of the banister of the stairs and she disappeared. The stairs had the big ball, roughly the size of a grape fruit, on top of the post at the bottom, just to get an idea of what I’m talking about. He said he felt that this was a sign and decided to remove the ball and post to see what, if anything, was there. Once the ball was taken off it was revealed to be hollow and held a roll of $100 bills that added up to be $2000.

I was not even thought of at this point so I have no clue whether this story is as I have said. However my grandma said that after these events money wasn’t as big an issue for a while and she has no clue why. Maybe my great grandpa stole something or robbed somebody and used this as a cover story, but based on what I’ve been told about him I think that this is legitimate.

    Nice. i have heard from relatives about their granparents finding money like that. My house, a neighbor’s or your own house could have hidden treasure somewhere, especially if its an old house, you never know. So i believe you.
